Standardized Death Rate per 100,000 NH
Residents
There is no statistically significant difference in the rate of deaths for TBI between the
years 2001 and 2009. The width of the confidence intervals overlaps across all years,
showing that the difference from year to year may be from chance. While counts appear
to change, when weighted against the annual populations, the rates do not change.
